Haha, very simple, and it could ramp up a bit faster. Cool concept, though!

Nice game but it's a little bit too easy. In order to win the player just needs to click on the earlier graves. If some graves were faster than others it'd be more challenging and interesting.

Very cute! I liked everything about it, nicely done! Only thing is, it's just April, not November... eh, still very good! ;)

This kinda feels like a really big game of Whack-a-Mole. It's kind of at the slow side though... Other than that, great game! Congrats! :)

Nice! This scenario would probably be a great comedy sketch. Annoyed gravekeeper routinely hitting dead people with a shovel. Probably knows everyone by their name after all the years.
- Oh Mrs. Jones just stay put! *bam*

Would be nice if game be harder, its too easy to win and nothing to do in-between zombie revivals

Simple concept, well executed.

Thanks everyone for your advised comments. :)

I was aware of the lack of difficulty, so I planned to do a post-compo version to fix that. And I just did. I hope this one will fullfill your needs of challenge... ;)

I do like it. It is a simple game but everything fits. I like the sound how he claps on the sand. Nicely done

Cool idea but as others have pointed out, too easy I think. Completed it without breaking into a sweat. Cool tune.

I beat it on my first attempt, but I like the game over screen the most :)

Thanks again for the comments since my last message. :)

And I'm starting to believe that I'm the only one for who I have make a losing screen. XD

Nice and simple! I'm loving that shovel sound :D

The atmosphere of the game is really good.
Original lacks speed, but the full-moon edition feels like a complete game. Nice work.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
